A second-half Hayden Mullins goal sees Birmingham City beat Leeds United in the Championship.

Birmingham City have beaten Leeds United 1-0 thanks to a Hayden Mullins goal midway through the second half.

The home side were dominant throughout the first half but could have paid for their wastefulness had it not been for Mullins's winner.

The dribbling of Nathan Redmond and Ravel Morrison caused the Leeds defence problems in the early stages, with the latter having a couple of half-chances and seeing his curling effort rebound off the crossbar.

Birmingham went close again five minutes later as Shane Ferguson's 30-yard effort just missed the post, before Michael Tonge stung the hands of Jack Butland at the other end.

City missed another good chance midway through the half, when Mullins blazed over after Curtis Davies's header had rebounded to him.

There was still time for another Morrison chance before the break, but the midfielder missed the target after some good skill on the edge of the box.

The visitors began the second half much better than the first, with Ross McCormack seeing his curling effort deflect just wide of the post, before Tom Lees missed the target from six yards out.

With 20 minutes to go the home side took the lead, when Mullins was on hand to tap in after Paddy Kenny spilled Redmond's shot.

Chris Burke missed a couple of late chances to double the lead but Birmingham had done enough and won the match by a single goal.
